It’s dumb that they selected Lesnar to break Punks record, it’s hardly a impressive feat when he’s only defending the belt roughly every 3 months. If they were determined to write Punk out of the history books at least use a full-timer who could have legit bragging rights.

Please say this is nothing more than a cleverley worked shoot........
 
Quote As we noted about two weeks ago, Brock Lesnar was not being booked for SummerSlam but was rumored to end up competing at the show as the weeks went by. The latest reports indicate that Lesnar will indeed NOT be wrestling at SummerSlam and the next time we may see him would be well into the second half of the year.

-- WWE's plan remains to be to have a babyface Roman Reigns defeat Lesnar for the Universal title but at some point over the last two weeks, it became clear to Vince McMahon that this wasn't going to happen - certainly not in New York, the site of SummerSlam. It was then that McMahon made the decision to keep Lesnar and the Universal title match off of that card and instead spend the next few months once again attempting to build Reigns back up as a face.

-- This would also explain why the company quickly changed course with the originally planned multi-person match at Extreme Rules, which was supposed to determine the new #1 contender and thus, Lesnar's opponent for SummerSlam. With Brock likely off the next couple of PPVs, the match was scrapped and instead we are headed towards a Roman Reigns vs. Bobby Lashley singles match for Extreme Rules.

-- Lesnar's status with WWE remains unclear, but he is under contract for one more match (at the very least) which is when most expect he will drop the title. It appears WWE is willing to wait it out in order to find the very best situation in which they want him to appear while still fulfilling their long term plan for Roman Reigns.

The title is already worthless enough without it missing from a big four event.
 
I say it should be melted down and worn by someone as a necklace, like with Karma when he stole the urn off The Undertaker.

They've just backed themselves into a corner with this whole Reigns thing. If Lesnar is going back to the UFC and isn't going to do another match (I know he's contracted to one more match) but surely the can have that being Braun attacking him somewhere and cashing in, in a random place like they did with the hardcore title on the 24/7 rule. You get Lesnar's match out the way without holding it back until Reigns is deemed ready again.

If he's not going to compete strip him of the belt and let Strownman cash in to get the belt.

It’s laughable that WWE are allowing the Universal title to go undefended for so long, I think Lesnar may have already set the record for longest ever time as World champ without defending, if not I think he will own that record if he sits out Summerslam as that will be close to five months with no title defence, nearly half a year.

I could almost live with Lesnar not working the B-PPV’s as it takes us back to the old formula when the champion would only have a televised defence at the four PPV’s so as long as Brock shows up for the major shows it’s something I can put up with as it does give more value to his matches and the title. But he’s already missed Money in the Bank which is now considered a big show and to possibly miss Summerslam is a joke.

And all because Vince wants more time to get the fans to accept Roman as top babyface - it’s not going to work Vince flip him heel and let it happen organically and give the belt to Strowman.

If they are really that set on Reigns taking the title - then they should just do it.

ITs going to happen, everyone knows its going to happen so regardless of what PPV they are advertised to face each other on - if people dont want to watch it then they wont watch it.


Imagine doing it in New York though and then having Strowman cashing in - the crowd would go wild

Lesnar is still expected to defend the title at Summerslam before his WWE contract expires. The idea that he won't be doing so is being put out by WWE to turn as many people against Lesnar as possible and hopefully get him to Ciampa level hated status

No one in the WWE can get to Ciampa level in terms of heel work and hatred. No ones good enough

They're just trying to get people invested in his title run. To be fair, people are very invested. Lesnar's title reign, particular since he surpassed CM Punk's reign, is one of the most talked about things on social media as regards the graps

It's ridiculous to even have a strap on him. While it may be the plan for Brock, its sad that WWE has their so called world /universal champ not even on tv, hardly defend the belt , oh and is bascially mute. AJ the real world champ isnt even refered to as such. He only the WWE champ, pathetic. Brock needs to just leave.
